Oregon Voting On Immigrant Tuition Bill

SALEM, Ore. — A bill allowing illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition could be voted on by the full Oregon House this Friday. The bill was approved by a House committee on Monday.

Currently, Oregon state universities make students pay out-of-state tuition if they cannot prove they are in the U.S. legally.

The bill’s supporters feel young immigrants should not be denied affordable education just because their parents decided to move them to the U.S. illegally.
